SBR: We should all be feminists is a short book based on a TED talk by the author. It is simply written and effectively tackles all the common objections to feminism. The Nigerian experience of the author will definitely ring a bell for the Indian readers. But western world is no paragon of feminism either and Adichie doesn’t spare them.
If you have said or been told stuff like
- Why specifically feminism and gender problem? Why not talk about all human rights issues?
- But our culture…
- Feminism is no longer needed. I don’t think about gender…
then this book is something you must read.
To read or not to read: Yes. And just because it has “feminists” in title, it doesn’t mean it is to be read by women only. Men also must read it.
